http://televisioneast.live/2018/08 vannaktiviteter i barnehagen In fact, she seems to have made a life and career out of working hard and asking for more opportunities to excel. After college, she worked for Yellow Book and sold Yellow Page advertising to businesses in her community. In college, she worked two jobs: one in marketing as a Burrito Ambassador for Chipotle (who wouldn’t want to live on Chipotle for two years?!) and for Angela Davis, assistant United States attorney.

She’s driven, persistent and gets what she wants with grace. Here’s a snippet of her journey so far:

I was very excited about it until I learned that I would be starting, which isn’t good because that means I wouldn’t have any room to grow. I really wanted to go to UCLA, so I started calling and emailing the university and the coach herself. I got her to come to my games. I don’t even know when she saw me play, but I was accepted late as a walk on, probably because of my persistence.”

She wanted to work specifically for the huge fundraising machine, Hoag Hospital: “I got a piece of advice that I needed to gain experience in an organization that is big and well run. I would then have the experience to run something smaller.”

She and I spoke at length and four months later, she called back to let me know there was an opportunity. Hearing ‘no’ doesn’t mean you’re not qualified. Sometimes it’s just timing.”

There seems to be a theme of how Katie does things: work hard and make it known that you want to excel. After working at Hoag for a couple of years, Katie was ready for the next step. She wanted to earn her MBA at night while still working full-time. After careful consideration of what she would say, Katie set an appointment with the CEO of Hoag Hospital.
“I made an appointment with the CEO and thought about his profession and career path. I knew he was a major advocate of education and that he was concerned about where he was going to find Hoag’s future leadership. It became clear that leadership was his biggest concern, yet Hoag’s scholarship for education was only $2,500. We ultimately created the Michael Stephens Scholarship, a $5,000-25,000 scholarship for higher education. Thirty people received the scholarship by the time I left Hoag.
I didn’t realize approaching the CEO while I was an associate was such a big deal. I just did it.
She was 26.
While at a networking event she decided to attend last minute (one of those, I’m too tired to attend, but I really should go moments), she met Stephen Gordon, Opus Bank’s CEO. Three years later, they were able to reconnect when Gordon founded the Opus Community Foundation. Katie was now ready to run her own organization.
“I got some of my first job leads from a person in a grocery store line.”
“It’s sad how afraid of ‘no’ we can be. We hear it all the time. I get told ‘no’ 99 percent of the time and I don’t like it, but you also don’t get what you don’t ask for.
You never know where you’re going to meet someone. I got some of my first job leads from a person in a grocery store line. Another time, I was out in the water and I met a CPA who was also surfing in Laguna. We started talking in the water and I later gave him my card. Everyone you meet is another opportunity. You don’t have to be extremely outgoing. You just have to ask.”
The sage on the stage
Now, at age 31, Katie knows a thing or two about success. She had some advice for Accountable in Action’s members:
“Women aren’t as forthcoming when it comes to certain conversations. Step out of your comfort level. People want to see leaders.”
“Everyone should have a friend to go to networking events with. It makes things easier because you don’t feel like you’re alone. You can help each other build strength and confidence. Before it existed, my friends and I did the Accountability Ally program. We were providing accountability. It’s important to remind each other of all the things you’ve accomplished and to surround yourself with like-minded people who help you build confidence.”
“If you can’t figure out what you need to do next, don’t let decisions be made for you as a result of indecision.”
“Constantly reevaluate and avoid complacency. Find people who say more than ‘that’s how we’ve always done it.'”
“Every no you hear is closer to yes!”
